Polls show that Hillary Clinton would have won even bigger

Did voters really want Hillary more than Barack? That’s what Vaughn Ververs is reporting, based on exit polls on election day:

As voters left the polls on Election Day, many were asked how they would have voted if the election match-up were between Hillary Clinton and John McCain rather than Barack Obama and McCain,” the Web site says. “52 percent said they would have backed the former Democratic candidate; 41 percent would have voted for McCain, wider than Obama’s 7-point margin over McCain.

The Eye’s data reviewer found that a full 16% of people who voted for McCain would have instead voted for Hillary had she been the Dem candidate. Most who would have switched their McCain votes as such were older women – 61% were at least 45 years old. [CBS News]
